After class today, I stopped by the shop to inquire into what they have to recommend or sell for bikes, and again, the person I needed to talk with had just left. Oh well, two for two. I will try later, and I am in no hurry. From the shop, I rode back by the apartment, then climbed Via Bolognese all the way up to Pratolino, where I turned off to climb to the junction that goes over to L'Olmo, which I took. From there, I took the right that takes you down through Caldine and Pian de Mugnone back to Firenze via Piazza della Cure. The weather was definitely warmer, and I even had a little sun. The forecast is for better weather, but rain seems to pop up most days. We shall see. Good ride today, the summary is: 19 miles, with 1990 vertical feet of climbing, in 1:38 rolling time, for an average speed of 11.5 mph, at an average temperature of 52. The garmin link is:

Looking North from my break spot, that is Monte Scenario in the distance.
